Did you catch Gayle Monsma’s recent CSI webinar, “A Framework for Authentic and Integral Christian Education”? Monsma elaborates on a helpful way of thinking about our task as Christian educators and leaders. Attributed to N.T. Wright (but actually differing slightly), Monsma asks us to consider the following scenario:
Imagine you are on an archaeological dig and uncover a previously unknown Shakespeare play. The play is in five acts, and you have managed to recover the first three and the final acts, but Act 4 is missing. Your task is to write Act 4, fully honoring the context found in Acts 1-3 and 5.
